I`ve been building a replica of a danish gentlemans yacht from 1866; Caroline. She`s 40 feet overall, 11 feet wide and have a draught of 6 feet on the heel.
The work started 8 years ago and now all frames are up and I have recently finish the long counter. Next will be planking the hull.
I have been asked to calculate the hours spent until now, and this is where I turn to you. How many manhours is spent, when you have a hull framed up and ready for planking?
Keel, stem, stern, frames and counter is all in oak, as the planking wil be. The frames are single frames, build with eight ½ inch copperbolts clinched in both ends and four wooden trunnels in each frame. There are 18 frames.
